Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and cerebral blood flow velocity in newborn infants.

Abstract

Doppler ultrasound was used to study cerebral hemodynamics in the pericallosal artery of 21 newborn infants undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for intractable respiratory failure. Cerebral blood flow velocity waveforms were obtained pre-ECMO, after every major change in cardiopulmonary bypass flow during ECMO, and post-ECMO. The mean… (More)
